Membership application for the Downtown Corvallis Shopping Center Association, Corvallis, Oregon, 1979. Author unknown. (Adobe Portable Document Format)

The Downtown Corvallis Shopping Center Association, organized circa 1979, was the forerunner of the Downtown Corvallis Association, a taxpayer-subsidized merchants' and community development organization still extant at the time of this file's upload in 2013.

This one-sided photocopied page documents the first name of the organization and provides a concise statement of the group's initial purpose, as well as sliding-scale dues rates in effect at the time of formation.

The document emphasizes the role of the Downtown Corvallis Shopping Center Association in building customer traffic for downtown businesses (and indirectly for the property owners owning the physical space) through "regular 'Downtown-wide' sales and special events" and making improvements in the way of parking and cleanliness. Meetings of the group were held monthly.

Of additional historical note is the "DC" logo for the group, a graphic design which was soon to be the subject of litigation between the artist and the organization over reproduction rights. The Downtown Corvallis Association would ultimately pay a four-figure settlement to end the dispute and would abandon the original logo for a new design with a motif featuring the landmark Benton County Courthouse created by another artist.

No copyright on document at time of first publication. Preserved as a historical artifact.
